This blog is about all forms of wildlife I record around North Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes in particular. My main interests for 2012 will be looking for anything I've not seen before.

Linford Lakes at lunch time

With showers just passing as I entered the car park, I saw my first Red Admiral of the year resting on a blue car. So I started another butterfly survey for 15 minutes. I also added 5 Gatekeepers, 2 Green-veined White, 1 Small White, 1 Common Blue, 1 Meadow Brown and 2 Speckled Wood.
On the bird front - 3 Green Woodpeckers on the road in, 1 Kingfisher (my first at this site all year!), 4 Little Egrets and 1 Egyptian Goose on the bund. Grey Squirrel, Rabbits and a tiny Grass Snake made up the rest.
